Amanda Terman

Genuine, Smart, Fun

Voice Description

My engaging yet grounded Midwestern millennial voice evokes an intelligent young professional wearing glasses and a cute pair of flats. But though she's witty and hip, this lady is not wearing an ironic t shirt beneath her cardigan: she's confidently genuine, and a little nerdy.

Have you heard enough cheerful young women, but need to find the right voice for a crazy old lady, devious little animal, or vapid lingerie model? I also specialize in creating character voices!

Like many other voice actresses, I'm a trained singer (B.A., Music), but unlike most others, I'm a published author of scientific research (M.A., Social Psychology) with experience teaching psychology, statistics, research methods, and writing to university students.

If you need help with your copy, please ask! I'm a punctilious proofreader, and I'll ensure that you're sharing your ideas effectively.
